Elsie Betts, 1976

Description

Taken by Terry Swan. Secretary to the Director A.M. Carr Saunders 'Mrs Elsie Betts retirement on 31st July will bring to a close a period of service which began in June 1932, when as Elsie Tudor, she joined the School as junior clerk in correspondence. She has worked at the LSE ever since except for a period between 1946 and 1948 when she took a job in Cambridge, a place she had grown to like when she move there with the School during the war, By 1946 she already held the post of private secretary to the Director. She had been appointed to this post in September 1942 afterspending the previous ten years in a number of increasingly responsible positions, and it was as Director's secretary that she returned to the School in 1948. During the next ten years Mrs Bett served two Directors, Sir Alexander Carr-Saunders and Sir Sidney Caine... She married in 1958 and her new domestic responsibilities made it necessary for her to look for a post that would demand slightly less in terms of availability although not of dedication. She found this as assistant to Mrs Marion Horn and her successors, dealing with the appointment of academic staff...'

The Crawlers

Description

From 'Street Life in London', 1877, by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith: ?But old age, and want of proper food and rest, reduces them to a lethargic condition which can scarcely be preferable to death itself. It will be noticed that they are constantly dozing, and yet are never really asleep. Some of them are unable to lie down for days. They sit on the hard stone step of the workhouse, their heads reclining on the door, and here by old custom they are left undisturbed. Indeed, the policeman of this beat displays, I am told, much commiseration for these poor refugees, and in no way molests them. When it rains, the door offers a little shelter if the wind is in a favourable direction, but as a rule the women are soon drenched, and consequently experience all the tortures of ague and rheumatism in addition to their other ailments. Under such circumstances sound sleep is an unknown luxury, hence that drowsiness from which they are never thoroughly exempt. This peculiarity has earned them the nick-name of" dosses," derived from the verb to doze, by which they are sometimes recognized. The crawlers may truly be described as persons who sleep ?with one eye open.?
